Retromobile 2024: another success this year!

The trend of declining attendance at so-called “traditional” car shows is being overshadowed by the growing success of events dedicated to classic cars, like Rétromobile.

Car shows that were once considered traditional, such as the Paris Motor Show or the Geneva Motor Show, are no longer drawing in the same crowds. Even looking at the upcoming Swiss show’s program makes it clear that there is a decline in interest.

The Lyon Motor Show is one of the few that is currently thriving, along with more enthusiast-focused events like Le Mans Classic, Goodwood, and Villa d’Este. However, these events can’t exactly be classified as traditional car shows.

On the other hand, events dedicated to classic cars continue to attract large numbers of visitors. Epoqu’Auto in Lyon and Rétromobile have recently seen an increase in attendance, with Rétromobile’s latest edition reporting a turnout of 130,000 visitors compared to 125,000 the previous year.

Always more visitors to Rétromobile

The 2024 edition of Rétromobile continued the trend from 2023, with the organiser announcing 130,000 visitors at the 48th edition compared to 125,000 the previous year. The show saw a strong turnout, with appearances from drivers Charles Leclerc, Sébastien Loeb, and Stéphane Peterhansel, as well as Ferrari Formula 1 team director Frédéric Vasseur and renowned Porsche collector Magnus Walker.

The show also featured significant anniversary celebrations and impressive displays. For example, the 50th anniversary of the Turbo emblem at Porsche and the half century of the Volkswagen Golf were celebrated. Several manufacturers showcased large stands, including MG, which displayed its reputation-making classic cars and its newest addition, the MG Cyberster. Renault also exhibited a selection of its new products, including future Renault 5 models and the new Rafale, along with the first Rafale plane.

The appointment has already been made in 2025

Following this year’s success, Rétromobile has announced its return in 2025. The 49th edition will take place from February 5 to 9, 2025, at the Porte de Versailles, and is expected to feature even more stands and exhibitors than before.
